I can not thank Menno enough for providing such a good learning platform! This is a must for every personal trainer or strength training enthusiast who wants to know what works (best) and what doesn’t![...]the part about pain/injuries kinda blew my mind. I think there’s more useful info in those 27 pages than I was taught during 4 years at the Norwegian school of health sciences studying to be an osteopath!

The depth of the material goes beyond anything you will find in the current literature or typical PT courses offered.If you are at all interested in furthering your knowledge with an evidence based approach.You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity!

Superb and honestly worth ten times the price. I can't think of a better form of continued professional development. Quite honestly I can say that this was the best learning experience of my entire life. [...] The course has a fluid informal feel, whilst encouraging everyone to interact and benefit from each other's questions and experiences. Menno is rare in that he interprets, implements and teaches a completely rational, evidence-based approach but with clear creativity and flair.

I have never taken a course that backed up all its advice so well. Everything taught is backed not only by hundreds of research studies but also by hundreds of real-life examples.

Amazing course.

The Henselmans PT course has helped me to better align my coaching practice with the latest evidence in nutrition and training. The quality of education rivals and even exceeds that found in upper level university courses. It should be the standard by which all other PT courses are measured. 
Brianna Neuwirth
Registered Nurse & Head Nutrition Coach for Neulinea LTD.
This course has been eye-opening to me in many ways. You get great frameworks to use with your clients where the guesswork is replaced by concrete guidelines backed by science (to which all the links are provided). Furthermore there is an abundancy of interesting course materials to read and learn, and if this was not enough added with video-lectures and recommended readings. To top this off, you become part of a  wonderful community of like-minded people to ask questions, help eachother out and so on.
